Once we got word that Pharrell Williams would be a mentor on Rihanna’s upcoming fashion reality show Styled To Rock, we didn’t think it could get much cooler. But leave it to RiRi to keep us on our toes by announcing that fellow queen-of-cool, model Erin Wasson will also be joining the series.
Sartorially speaking, we can’t wait to see what the 12 up-and-coming designer contestants have in store as they battle under the guidance of Wasson and Williams for the chance to dress Rihanna for a so-far-unnamed high profile event. There’s no telling just how fierce the competition’s going to get, but we’re sure about one thing: the two tatted-up stars will bring the necessary edge to keep up with our favorite bad girl.
Salaam Coleman Smith, president of Style Media, seems to agree, sending the following statement in a press release this morning:
“We could not have asked for a better addition to our team. As a leading model and mainstay in the fashion industry, Erin’s unapologetic approach to fashion and free-spirited style will give the Styled to Rock designers invaluable insight. With Rihanna as executive producer and Pharrell and Erin as mentors, our designers will gain incredible experience while also being challenged in new ways as they compete to earn the title of America’s next trendsetting designer.”
